Disney is an Atheist

I went to Disney World Monday. One of their big exhibits at Epcot Center is the energy show. This is a ride that explains how the earth begins. Disney believes in the "BIG BANG THEORY", with visuals, sound effects and Ellen Degeneres to illustrate. No mention of a supreme being. Millions of little minds can be influenced by Disney. Religious people have their work cut out for them. It is not easy I tell you.

I've been to Disney World a dozen times, since I was little. And I've seen that show probably at least as many times. I even remember a pre-show at "The Seas" (Now "The Seas With Nemo and Friends") that talked about how life began in the primeval soup. That pre-show is no longer there... but I know that I saw it more than once. I'm a Christian, and my parents are Christians. They weren't afraid to take me to Disney World because of shows that bring up theories that they don't agree with. Remember, Disney is a big company made up of hundreds of thousands of people. There's no set thing that Disney "believes" because all the people in Disney naturally believe different things. Those shows were set up to teach kids about science. Evolution is a part of science. They've probably gotten a lot of burning complaints about it over the years, too. I wonder if that's the reason that "The Seas" is now a exhibit with animated characters and never mentions primeval soup once. I can tell you that I was one of those "little minds" that could have been influenced by Disney. But I wasn't. My parents have always been a stronger influence on me than any huge cooperation. Sheltering me from such theories and other worldviews would not have made me grow into a stronger person of faith. It would have only made me ignorant. My faith wouldn't be real because it would not have been truly challenged. Good Christian parents shouldn't be afraid to expose their children to different ideas. I don't like this whole idea that there are us Christians and everyone else is "the enemy". Disney isn't the enemy. Neither is science, evolution, or even atheists. They're all people who we need to share our faith with, not people we should be at war with.

The entire theory of evolution is a thought up creation to discredit the Bible and to discredit our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

That is actually a good thing. It opens up a discussion about the different ways that people think and since children are exposed to that theory anyway, parents can discuss it with them according to their age. That way, they get it from the parents instead of educators. It's not that Disney is atheist. I don't know what they are and don't really care. But if they were to put a ride there that celebrated God's creating the universe they would be slapped with so many lawsuits that they'd be tied up in court till the end of the world!

I think that is an over-generalization. I watch Disney movies and most of their movies teach really good lessons to the kids.
